The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and seven albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's 2017 album, Two Hearts, ...read more.

A singer of this magnitude comes along about once a century; and here she is.

Maybe people have had enough of listening to screechers these past ten years. Jackie Evancho SINGS. She reminds us of how it should be done. Pitch perfect notes and loses herself in the emotion of the songs she performs. Listening to Jackie is a fulfilling experience, not just a background noise. The world of music is at her feet.

I am so sick of cheap, over-produced, bubble-gum pop and screeching satanic perverse garbage that passes as music... THANK GOD for Jackie Evancho! What a breath of fresh air! What a beautiful soprano voice, so rich and thrilling in its tone, so sincere in its passionate expressiveness, so perfect in pitch, and so deep in its inspiration. This girl is THE VOICE I have waited all my life for.

Really a great singer.

He's been gone for almost a decade, and no more new music is coming out from him, ever. He still sells a moderate amount of his legacy recordings, and The Beatles sell even more than he does, but its relevant only to themselves, and has zero effect on the industry.

well duh

3 Rick Ross Rick Ross William Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur.

Looking forward to seeing him as the opening act on the deadmau5 world tour.

He has the best flow and lyrics and he is the most talented rapper.

Jackie Evancho sucks and should be cut of from this list. She is better off being a child slave or a taxi driver.

4 Sage the Gemini Sage the Gemini Sage the Gemini is an American rapper, songwriter, and record producer from Fairfield, California. He is probably most well known for being featured on the Flo Rida song "GDFR."

Saying someone is the best rapper ever is like saying they are the best serial killer ever, not really a good thing.

Not a musician, so not exactly sure how he will save the music industry.

Sage The Gemimi? He trash. - 05yusuf09

He is the best rapper ever.

13 Justin Timberlake Justin Timberlake Justin Randall Timberlake is an American singer-songwriter, actor, dancer, and record producer. Born and raised in Tennessee, he appeared on the television shows Star Search and The All-New Mickey Mouse Club as a child.

In a world where pop doesn't offer as much as it used to (now it's simple and repetitive) jt offers some musical complexity and verity. With his recent comeback suit and tie, he demonstrates his vocal abilit very well in a song that has a good beat and effective placement of instrumentation. Hope he makes more like that

14 Robbie Williams Robbie Williams Robert Peter Williams is an English singer, songwriter and actor. He was a member of the pop group Take That from 1990 to 1995 and again from 2009 to 2012. He has also had commercial success as a solo artist.

Two words: Rock DJ.

Lana Del Rey is not your typical autotune candy pop trash. She's unique, and she creates her own genre. She deserves more credit.

She's such a good singer I really like her version of once upon a dream

Lana is beautifully perfect. She is different and unique.

Being sued by Radiohead for plagiarism. Awkward.

He can do almost anything! - NegatronWildhawk

I guess you are right.

He can do almost anything. He can make disgusting music, he can make lines that make no sense, and he can get popular for no reason. The only thing he can't do is make good music.

So you are technically right. - TheLister

25 The Black Keys The Black Keys The Black Keys is an American indie rock and blues rock duo, that was formed by Dan Auerbach (Vocals, Guitar) and Patrick Carney (Drums). ...read more.

The problem with the music industry is at its core giant record labels vs. everyone else. Being one of the most popular indie bands right now, I think that the Black Keys are most likely to save the music industry. Although their sound isn't as good as other indie bands, in my opinion, the fact that they can make popular music that isn't mass-produced like established artists.
